Re: El Al future

El AL really needs to add PHL. Lakewood which is less than an hour away has the second largest Jewish population on the east coast. It includes over 60,000 Jewish people. The trek to PHL is much easier from Lakewood then too EWR or even JFK. It would easily be a money maker on a 787-8 or -9. While ...

Re: Why is SQ non-stop flying to EWR and not JFK like the other flight via FRA?

The one thing nobody has mentioned JFK has a catch basin of NYC and North while EWR has a catch basin of NYC, Northern NJ, NE PA including Philadelphia all being less than an Hour away By I-95 where they would have to take the Bridge and L.I Expressway to get to JFK. May not seem like much to many ...

Re: Why is SQ non-stop flying to EWR and not JFK like the other flight via FRA?

Why? There's no exclusivity requirement for the J/V. Regulators wouldn't permit it, if there was. I haven't read the JV docs, but USA services were absent from the press release I saw. It would make no sense for UA to allow its Transatlantic JV partner (LH) to have another arrangement that potentia...

Re: Why is SQ non-stop flying to EWR and not JFK like the other flight via FRA?

Are you certain LH places its code on the SQ flight? This would seem to complicate LH’s Atlantic JV with UA. Why? There's no exclusivity requirement for the J/V. Regulators wouldn't permit it, if there was. I haven't read the JV docs, but USA services were absent from the press release I saw. It wo...

Re: Why is SQ non-stop flying to EWR and not JFK like the other flight via FRA?

EWR is the choice for Manhattan as it is closer to the NYC financial district. At JFK, SQ relies heavily on B6 feed as well as that LH codeshare/JV. The EWR relevance to finance is vastly overrated on a.net. “Wall Street” has progressively gravitated to east midtown for many years, where the concen...

Re: Why is SQ non-stop flying to EWR and not JFK like the other flight via FRA?

SQ and LH have a joint venture, and I suspect that this is a back-door way for LH to shoehorn in a third daily flight to JFK. It's timed to have minimal layover at FRA and arrive back in SIN for SQ's morning bank. This is also why, in the winter season, it's not important to have first class on the...

Re: DL adds ATL-BUR EFF JULY 8, 2019

While I don’t discount the film ties, DL also knows more broadly where its FFs/corporate flyers driving LAX POS live and work, and growing market strength in LAX POS in no small part supports incremental adds at secondary airports in the basin. Some traffic will be growth, some will cannibalize ATL-...

LAX-LHR was operated by AF with a DL code-share as I recall. Has DL ever operated this with its own metal?

MIA-LGW was previously served as well, following the PA transaction (routing was MCO-MIA-LGW for at least part of the route's life).

Re: OAG Changes 10/21/2018: AS;DL Ends JFK-SNA;UA

The fares were much lower on JFK-LGB, and relatively high on JFK-SNA. AA killed JFK-LGB because, in part, JFK-LGB was stealing passengers from JFK-SNA. AA dumped capacity at low fares on both routes, and they had zero strategic interest in operating either of them. Both routes were cancelled once i...

Re: OAG Changes 10/21/2018: AS;DL Ends JFK-SNA;UA

AA did it solely to punish B6 upon its entry into LGB (AA also added JFK-LGB). HP also flew it, and DL has tried before, I think. UA may have a a strong premium following at SNA, but there are many FFs willing to drive to LAX for the premium transcons on AA and DL to JFK. I don't recall America Wes...

Re: OAG Changes 10/21/2018: AS;DL Ends JFK-SNA;UA

Jeez, DL lasted on JFK-SNA about as long as AA lasted on JFK-DEN. Or as long as AA lasted on JFK-SNA. They operated this route with 757s in the mid-2000s. It didn't work. TWA also did it. SNA-JFK has been done at least three times that I know of. AA did it solely to punish B6 upon its entry into LG...

Re: OAG Changes 10/21/2018: AS;DL Ends JFK-SNA;UA

10x on CHA-ATL is alot of frequency, especially since this route has seen a ton of up gauging in recent years. I remember when it was all CRJ's, now they have MD88's, CR9's and CRJ's. Nice growth in a smaller market. Not sure how much more capacity CHA as an airport can absorb, they are busting at ...

Re: Why is BRU so underserved to major US hubs?

Sabena first flew BRU-ATL starting June 1, 1978 with 707's https://www.sunshineskies.com/atlanta-late70s.html Thanks! Per your link DL was indeed first, with LGW commencing in April 1978.

Re: Why is BRU so underserved to major US hubs?

I go back a ways and remember when Brussels was one of, if not, the first, European destinations served from Atlanta. That was of course back in the Sabena days. Then Delta got London and the rest is history. Not sure when Sabena started service to ATL, but I'm certain that as of 1985, Sabena flew ...
